457B Questions

Post by bg5 »

Happy Late Turkey Day

I was told by a co-worker that I may be able to transfer up to 10% a year from my 403b to my 457b.

1. Is this true?
2. If it is true does that 10% that I transfer count against my $18,500 a year max contributions?

The reason I was interested in doing this is that I plan to retire early and want to have as much money in my 457b as possible so that I can use it to buy some rental properties. I have plenty of experience with rentals and as long as I can use my 457b money to purchase and investment property or two then its should allow me to retire 7-8 years earlier.

Seems like a no brainer to me

I don't think so either. But even if it is true, I'm pretty sure that 403b money going into a 457b would be held in a separate account and not available without penalty until 59.5.
